AD Presents :: DJ Soft Touch, A Mixtape

Over the past year I’ve been inviting some of my favorite voices online (and beyond) to guest DJ during my weekly radio show on SIRIUS/XMU. For those of you sans satellite radio we’ve been turning the sets into an ongoing mixtape series. This week we catch up with Los Angeles’s own Clifton Weaver, aka DJ Soft Touch, who, along with Oliver Wang of Soul Sides, is my favorite rare soul, funk and r&b selector. I’ve never once heard the man spin without taking down at least   few notes that had me digging for weeks. I promise you his set here is no exception.

Soft Touch will be guest hosting the second hour of my show this Friday. Mixtape download and details after the jump…

  1. I can’t love this mix enough. I had never heard The Samurai, i have a new favorite in The Dutch Rhythm Steel & Show Band, and so many others i knew the artist well but never heard the song. “Collage” is amazing! should have been the A-side… Wow.
    Thanks for these.

  2. Clifton is my all time favorite DJ. I’ve watched him play for an hour and a half all on 45’s, for real. Dang he knows his stuff.
